dlibgit 0.50.6

Library for operating on GIT repositories based on libgit2


To use this package, put the following dependency into your project's dependencies section:

dub.json
dub.sdl

dlibgit

This library provides an idiomatic D interface to the libgit2 library. It is based on the Deimos libgit2 bindings and currently supports versions 0.19.0 and 0.20.0 of libgit2. This library is available as a DUB package.

This project was originally started by Andrej Mitrovic as a set of bindings to libgit2. He since started to implement a D wrapper interface, which was taken up by David Nadlinger. Since some time, Sönke Ludwig has continued the maintainership and completed most of the D API, moving the C bindings to a separate package to make the D API independent of libgit2's development.

Build status

Changes

v0.50.2 - v0.50.4

  • Added listRemotes, GitCommit.parents, GitCommit.parentOids, GitRemote.autoTag, and a SysTime based overload of createSignature
  • GitObject can now be converted to GitTree and to GitTag
  • Various small fixes and improvements to exception handling in callbacks

v0.50.1

  • Added support for indexes, submodules and tags
  • Time values are handled as SysTime objects now
  • "Upcasts" from GitObject to specialized types, such as GitCommit are supported now
  • GitSignature now has getter properties for all fields

v0.50.0

  • The version number has been incremented to be independent of the underlying libgit2 version - dlibgit aims to always support the latest versions of libgit2 under a unified API
  • The D interface is about 70% finished
  • All C bindings have been removed in favor of the separate Deimos package

v0.19.0

  • The new C-based bindings are now part of the git.c package.
  • The _object.d and _version.d files have been renamed to object_.d and version_.d, as this is the usual D convention of naming modules that use D keywords.
  • C-based documentation in the header files is now included with the .d files.
  • Enums members can now be accessed both with their fully qualified name (e.g. auto x = git_otype.GIT_OBJ_ANY), and as if they were defined in module scope (e.g. auto x = GIT_OBJ_ANY).

Notes

  • Currently the opaque structs are defined as structs with a disabled default ctor, and a disabled copy ctor. Ordinarily opaque structs are defined via the struct S; syntax, however due to a compiler bug (Issue 10497) the alternative syntax had to be used.

Requirements

[DMD] 2.063+.

Dependencies

  • Make sure you either clone with git clone --recursive, or if you've already cloned then use:

    $ git submodule init $ git submodule update

Windows:

  • A pre-built version of the libgit2 DLL is included with the bindings package

Posix:

  • Get the libgit2 shared library with your package manager
  • Or build libgit2 manually.
  • Making sure you install the right version of the libgit2 bindings (e.g. dub fetch libgit2 --version=0.19.2 or dub fetch libgit2 --version=0.20.1)

Building libgit2 manually

$ cd <your-folder-of-choice>
$ git clone git://github.com/libgit2/libgit2.git
$ cd libgit2
$ git checkout v0.20.0

  • Then follow these instructions: https://github.com/libgit2/libgit2#building-libgit2---using-cmake
  • You might need to install zlib if cmake says it's missing (On Posix use your package manager to find the zlib dev package).

Additional Posix notes:

  • Make sure the libgit2 shared lib path is in your ld conf file, for example on Linux Mint libgit2 installs to /usr/local/lib, so either edit /etc/ld.so.conf or run:

    $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
    $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    

Building and running samples

Samples

<span style="color: red">Note that the samples are not yet ported to the new D API and are currently absent from the repository</span>

diff sample:

$ rdmd build.d diff/diff.d
$ bin\diff.exe .git 2504016ab220b5b 1e8ffc04be048c0

  • This will diff the first two commits in dlibgit.
  • You could pass an absolute path, e.g. C:/some/git/repo/.git

showindex sample:

$ rdmd build.d showindex/showindex.d
$ bin\showindex.exe .git

git client sample: Note: This sample has not been ported to v0.19.0 yet.

$ rdmd build.d samples/network/git.d
$ bin\git.exe ls-remote git://github.com/s-ludwig/dlibgit.git
$ bin\git.exe index-pack path\to\.git\objects\pack\abcd1234.pack
$ bin\git.exe clone git://github.com/s-dludwig/dlibgit.git ../../dlibgit2_clone

  • clone is not the same as git's clone command, it does not deflate git object files.
  • fetch doesn't currently work due to some bugs in network\fetch.d.
  • Replace path\to with a valid path for index-pack.

On win32 some libgit functions work with either form of slashes, but you should prefer using forward slashes.

Usage tips

As a convenience you can import git.c.all or git.c (with the new 2.064 package import feature) to import all modules at once.

Documentation

You can use the libgit2 [API] docs. The [general] example is a good read.
